In this paper, capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers are fabricated using a sacrificial surface micromachining process. A testing procedure has been established in order to measure the absolute transmit and receive sensitivity spectra of the fabricated devices. The experiments are performed in oil. Pulse-echo experiments are performed and the results are compared to the pitch-catch measurements using calibrated transducers. © 2007 IEEE.

Olcum, S.; Oǧuz, K.; Şenlik, M.N.; Yamaner F.Y.; Bozkurt, A.; Atalar, A.; Köymen H. (2009)In this work we have designed, fabricated and tested CMUTs as underwater transducers. Single CMUT membranes with three different radii and 380 microns of thickness are fabricated for the demonstration of an underwater CMUT ...
An equivalent circuit model for transmitting capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers in collapse mode Olcum, S.; Yamaner F.Y.; Bozkurt, A.; Köymen H.; Atalar, A. (2011)The collapse mode of operation of capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs) was shown to be a very effective way to achieve high output pressures. However, no accurate analytical or equivalent circuit model ...
Bilateral CMUT cells and arrays: Equivalent circuits, diffraction constants, and substrate impedance Koymen H.; Atalar A.; Tasdelen A.S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2017)We introduce the large-signal and small-signal equivalent circuit models for a capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) cell, which has radiating plates on both sides. We present the diffraction coefficient ...
